Jolynn Raymond takes you by the hand and guides you through her domestic discipline relationship in such a way that you learn not only from her, but with her. For someone who is interested in entering a DD or power exchange relationship, I would say this is a must read. It is informative, direct, and she speaks from experience with always an emphasis on safety. For those of you who have a spanking or anal kink, there are delightful chapters that you might want to read through a couple of times (first for education, and then "strictly" for your own pleasure). Though Ms. Raymond is the dominant in this F/F relationship, it is important to note that her suggestions are applicable to all couples since gender has little to do with being a dominant or a submissive. I would even go out on a limb and say that vanilla relationships could benefit from some aspects of this book.
On the other hand, if you're not looking for a "how to" but instead a love story of two people who are totally committed to each other (with a realistic "view from the window" experience), you won't be disappointed. In every descriptive instance, there is love and sincerity ... from the punishments to playtime ... with honesty always at the forefront.
Whether you are in a DD relationship, looking to start one or just curious how one couple lives within such a loving lifestyle - this is a great read for you. I personally find real romance stories more erotic than fiction, (don't tell anyone I said that) and am confident that you will, too.
